    EP 63 - Merry Chrstmas and Happy Saw Kerfs!

    Anyone who has used an old crappy, rusty hand saw knows how frustrating it can be. The saw binds and gets stuck in the wood, probably because the saw has lost all the set in the teeth. But ancient saws, Roman, Greek even Egyptian saws apparently had no set at all. Is it possible Christmas changed that?

    EP 62 - When Do You Quit Your Day Job

    This is a big step in becoming a professional woodworker. The safety, security, 401k....health insurance can really tie us to a job, even one we  might hate. How do we make this transition a step upward in our career path and not a jump with a lead parachute?

Portish ,

Hits the nail on the head.

Such a great podcast that is both informative and motivational. Straightforward stuff without all the rambling tangents of many other panel woodworking shows.
